Jair Jurrjens: Atlanta Braves 2011 Player Preview

What kind of pitcher is Jair Jurrjens?

We finish up the main starting pitching previews/projections with Jair Jurrjens.

Jurrj had an off year last year, but was it due to the injuries that plagued him throughout the year or was it a true indication of the kind of pitcher he really is. This will be a tough one to predict, and I expect a lot of wildly varying numbers.
